What costs can be covered in a wrongful death claim?

In a typical personal injury suit, medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses related to the treatment and debilitating nature of the injury can be recognized for compensation. In wrongful death suit, different costs and burdens are considered and awarded relief can greatly minimize added strains for the loved ones filing suit.

Costs that can be covered in a wrongful death claim include:

  • Medical care expenses that occurred before the passing of the deceased
  • Any conscious pain and suffering the deceased experienced before passing
  • Any wages and benefits the deceased provided family that are now lost
  • The value of any support and service the deceased had provided family
  • Any inheritance lost by the children of the deceased
  • Any parental care and guidance now lost to children of the deceased
  • Any funeral and burial expenses

No amount of compensation can replace the loss of life after a tragic accident, but for families to face additional hardships after the passing of a loved one is unacceptable.
